Congrats to camdencomiccon for a great program on Saturday! This librarian enjoyed a quick trip to the campus center to see the crowds and vendors.

Don’t forget we have a display on French Comics here in the library.

We just pinned some more items from openculture to our “Free and Interesting Resources" board on Pinterest- Including some great link to art books and free movies.
Thank you OpenCulture

Camden Comic Con Event Program Released!

Tomorrow: inaugural Camden Comic Con 

Two of our librarians will be there!

Zara Wilkinson will moderate a panel which is a preview of the Buffy to Batgirl Conference in May right here on campus  

and 

Julie Still is running a workshop, “Rewrite a Comic!”

Librarians + Comic Con=  Much Awesome.

The Event Program has been released for the event. There will be print copies at the event, but we wanted everyone to get a gander at the event prior. The Program is located on the Attendance page in the sidebar. It comes in a PDF version and JPEG (Page 1, Page 2)

As we’re only one week out from the Con and to celebrate crossing the 300 Facebook guest mark, as well as the tremendous job our organizers and partners (dealers, special guests, vendors) have done to gain awareness for the event, I would like to share with you an almost final (one more student group needs to give approval) show poster for the event. This is less of an advertisement poster and more commemorative. Thanks for all your support and participation everyone.

You know, just all of Shakespeare’s plays free online here!

This would have been perfect for the 200 times I left my Taming of the Shrew book on my desk at home in high school.
